Nintendo doubles down on nostalgia with the $60 mini NES Classic Edition console



Quote
The company has just announced a re-imagined version of its classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) console from the early 1980s, fittingly titled the NES Classic Edition.

Launching on November 11 for a suggested price of $59.99, the NES packs a much smaller form factor this time around, and judging by the promo shots it sits neatly in the palm of your hand. It also ships with 30 built-in games, including Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight, Castlevania, Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, Ghosts n Goblins, Pac-Man, and the Legend of Zelda. The console also comes replete with an HDMI cable to plug into your new-fangled HD TV.

Although this is not on my radar, and neither was Pokemon GO! particularly, it's dangerously skirting the line. Nintendo's been in a nose dive for a while, and while this brought them back up, I don't know how much longer it can keep saving them.

I personally will remain satisfied with my 3DS XL for now, which I bought essentially NIB for $10 -- I'm seriously, SERIOUSLY digging the launch of their emulated old Gameboy/Gameboy Color releases again in a convenient, take-it-with-you-wherever-you-go package. I loved Super Mario Land: 6 Golden Coins.

I have a 2DS I bought last year. I have Super Mario and a few other games of old, plus the new ones. But while you can buy the old ones for like $2-$3 each - they are so, so tiny on that small screen.

I will likely buy this myself. Be nice to see it on a tv again.

I had the original nintendo back when I was 18.

I have a Gameboy Color emulator on my Android phone!  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:
